AGL Energy has announced the appointment of Vanessa Sullivan as non-executive director, effective 1 March 2022.
AGL said this appointment follows a “thorough process” conducted to appoint a further director with experience in climate risk, ESG governance and low emission industry transition.
Sullivan is an experienced non-executive director with strong commercial, financial, project development and strategy experience gained over 20 years in the energy, water and sustainability sectors.
More recently, Sullivan has been involved in hydrogen industry development as a climate change and utilities leader at EY.
Sullivan is also an independent member of Queensland’s Hydrogen Taskforce and a member of Centacare’s advisory board.
AGL chairman Peter Botten said that Sullivan’s skills in the areas of climate change, risk, EG and energy markets will be of great value to the board.
“Through our recently announced climate commitments for Accel Energy we have set a new baseline in this area against which the company will measure its success and strive to improve as the energy market evolves,” said Botten.
“My fellow Directors and I are delighted to welcome Vanessa to the AGL Energy Board, and we are looking forward to working with her”.
